EMM: Don't Speed

Paul would probably laugh if he saw this. My driving makes him crazy because I tend to be too cautious (at least in his opinion). I tend to stay close to the posted speed limit, try not to change lanes too often (kind of the idea of no need to change paths until I need to), and slow down in bad weather. I rarely don't have enough time to get where I'm going (usually show up early). Hey if you don't speed you can't get a speeding ticket!

EMM: Don't Honk

This day's actions are:
1. Only us horn when reasonably necessary to ensure the safe operation of your car.
2. Don't use your horn to let someone know you're angry, to let them know you are waiting outside, or as a way of protesting.
3. Get your hearing checked.

I read the actions first and thought the last one was funny, but they are trying to make the point that unnecessary horns blaring is a form of noise pollution that can cause hearing loss. I'm not sure when the last time I used my horn at all or the last time I heard a horn being used as indicated in the first action. I'm not even sure that if I used my horn for some safety-type reasons, those around me would even understand it that way or just think someone was mad.
